Synopsis

SELECTED AS A 2018 SUMMER READ BY THE SUNDAY TIMES, OBSERVER, I-PAPER AND THE BIG ISSUE



'Enormously entertaining' SUNDAY TIMES

'Fascinating' NEW STATESMAN

'Excoriating, brilliant' ALI SMITH

'Enthralling' GUARDIAN

'My number one contributor when it comes to US politics' DAN SNOW





`The American dream is dead,' Donald Trump said when announcing his candidacy for president in 2015. How would he revive it? By putting `America First'.



The `American Dream' and `America First' are two of the most loaded phrases in America today - and also two of the most misunderstood. As divides within America widen, Sarah Churchwell looks to the past to reveal what the surprising history of these two phrases can tell us about today.
